Vincent Van Gogh, meet Felicity Brown

March 31st, 2011

Oops, I had completely forgotten. It’s Vincent Van Gogh‘s birthday! The quintessential starving artist, Van Gogh had a tough life – chronically plagued with mental and physical illness – but he was able to produce some absolutely incredible works of art. One of my personal favourites is The Starry Night, painted in 1889 during his […]

I love juice, but don’t buy a lot of it. I also don’t normally eat a lot of fruit. So instead, I make smoothies. It’s the easiest thing – just throw a bunch of fruit in a blender and go. Here are three two-ingredient versions that are truly quick and easy: Honeydew & Green Apple […]

Almond Graham Tuiles

March 28th, 2011

Hello again! I hope you’ve all had a marvelous weekend. Did you notice the little tuiles in my previous post? They were delicious and addictive, and so very easy to make. For this recipe you’ll need a mini food processor at hand. I bought mine a few months ago and it has quickly become one […]

Brazilian Pineapple Ice Cream

March 25th, 2011

Yesterday, winter decided to return and bestow upon us the gift of an all-day snowstorm. I know, right? How thoughtful. I had neglected to check the forecast the night before, and awoke to a veil of snowflakes that would not lift until night fell. So to counteract the dreariness of the day, I decided to […]

Spring/Summer 2011 Trends: Lace

March 24th, 2011

Last Saturday, I shared a clip from my favourite two-man novelty band, Flight of The Conchords, and alluded to one of the season’s fashion trends showing up at a certain point in the video. BTW, thanks to FeatherFactor for popping the comment cherry on my newbie blog! You were in the right spot, but the […]

I spent my weekend with a great friend; you know, the kind you don’t necessarily see often, but whenever you do, it’s like nothing has changed and you can chat about anything and everything, and it’s just fun, and comfortable, and even inspiring, and you don’t care about the time? Yes, that kind. I consider […]

Fashion is Danger

March 19th, 2011

I did say this blog would contain things other than food, didn’t I? In the interest of keeping my promises, let’s get started on that! While food for me has often been about exploring ideas one (or a few) at a time, fashion and design are so much a part of my background and training […]

On the Horizon: St. Patrick’s Day – Guinness Truffles

March 15th, 2011

So far, we’ve got drinks, veggies, and a main course… but what about dessert? Thick, foamy and rich Guinness stout seemed to be a natural match for dark chocolate, so I decided to feature it in truffle form. The stew from yesterday’s post doesn’t use an entire can of Guinness, and even though I don’t […]

On the Horizon: St. Patrick’s Day – Guinness Stew

March 14th, 2011

Veggies and dip are hardly enough for a meal, so in continuation of our St. Patty’s Day exploration, here’s where the beer comes in. Just because I don’t drink it doesn’t mean I can’t enjoy it in other ways! It’s been exceptionally dreary around here for the past few days, and I’ve been craving comfort […]

On the Horizon: St. Patrick’s Day – Green Goddess Dip

March 13th, 2011

With all the alcohol you will (or will not be drinking, right, DDs and underage folks? No, I’m not your mother!) on St. Patrick’s Day, it’s probably a good idea to incorporate some equally festive food into the celebration and soak up some of the booze. Having often heard of the classic crudite accompaniment Green […]
